True North Favourite: Mortimer


This is my all-time favourite children's book by our very own Canadian author, Robert Munsch. When I was a child, I always remember singing at the top of my lungs and banging every pot and pan in the kitchen! I was told many times to keep it down, like Mortimer. "Clang-clang-rattle-bing-bang!"
